Online Sports Betting Operator, Stanley Bet, Donates 1.3 Million

Stanley Bet International

StanleyBet isn’t a name you see too often at Online Casino Suite. In fact, you will hardly ever see it. And not to say that StanleyBet doesn’t deserve to be on our pages, or that they are the “Macbeth”, I mean “Scottish Play” of the online gambling world, it’s just that StanleyBet is a sportsbook – and as our name likes to suggest – Online Casino Suite specializes in online casino gaming – not sports betting.

So why am I talking about StanleyBet now? Well, online gambling is online gambling (deep thought, eh?), and one of our missions here at OCS is to foster a good name for the online gambling world as a whole. It’s part of our quest to educate as many people as possible about the ins and outs of online gambling, and that if properly navigated, will provide a safe and fair virtual experience. And when one online gambling destination sets a good example, we like to tell everyone about it.

That said, StanleyBet International was in the news recently for donating over €1.3 million to help rebuild schools in the earthquake ravaged region of Abruzzo, Italy. What amounts to the highest contribution to the Abruzzo region by a foreign company, the money will go to immediate use helping build and reopen a primary school in the heart of Arista. The financial aid will allow the school to reopen it’s doors with approximately thirteen classrooms to some ninety elementary students for the first term in 2010.

Managing Director for StanleyBet, John Whittaker is on record saying, “We have very close links in Italy as well as employing a significant number of Italian nationals within our business….After such a tragic event, we felt it was incumbent on us to help in any way we could and as a result we decided to fund the rebuilding of the school in Arsita.”

Now, if that’s not a shining example of corporate social responsibility, then I don’t know what is. If more gaming corporations follow the lead of StanleyBet in sharing the wealth, not only does this help defeat the argument voiced by gambling opponents that sports betting (and wagering in general) is an illicit and immoral business, it obviously helps the world become a better place to live for all humanity – and that’s the most important thing of all.
